How to put nintendo games on psp: Are ROMs Legal In Australia?

Something the article doesn’t mention is the concept of “abadonware” – that is, the belief that since the original creators are no longer selling it or promoting it (such as an old console game), that it’s okay to obtain a copy such as a ROM. This is not the case at all. Computer software has at least a 75 year copyright life on it, so even the very first commercial video games ever made still fall under this and will do so for at least another 30 years or so yet. It’s true that some software creators decide to release their game to public domain – in which case you’re completely free to download and distribute them. But most don’t, so beware of anyone trying to pull the abadonware argument on you.
